On January 22, 2022, at approximately 4:49 PM, the Lebanon Police Department received a report about a man driving a Chevrolet Tahoe who attempted to drive a Toyota RAV4 off the road and then aimed and shot a handgun at the operator of the RAV4.
The two vehicles were traveling North on Meriden Road when the RAV4 attempted to pass the Tahoe in a passing zone. The Tahoe swerved at the RAV4, almost forcing the vehicle off the road. As the two vehicles continued North and reached Laplante Road, the man in the Tahoe shot a .44 magnum revolver through his own rear window at the RAV4, however, the bullet did not strike the RAV4.
The responding Officers were able to locate the Tahoe on Meriden Roadd a short time later, and identified the operator as Donald Delisle, age 50, from Cornish, NH. Delisle was taken into custody and his .44 magnum revolver and a 16-gauge pump shotgun were seized from Delisle’s vehicle.
